Folks who work in the field tend to do a lot of driving. And when you do a lot of driving, you run into some especially aggravating or hair-raising sections of road. With that in mind, here are a few trivia questions for my US readers: can you name the interstate highway and state?
1. Miles of perfect, freshly-paved 4 lane highway, no construction, no exits...with a permanent 40 mph speed limit... Doesn't sound bad, until you drive it and realize that nobody's changing their usual 80 mph driving and if some poor sucker tries to drive the speed limit, they'll get rear-ended within a minute.
2. On-ramps with stop signs...Not even a bugatti will do 0-70 in less than 2 seconds.
3. Driving in the breakdown lane is legal during rush hour...There are so many things wrong with this, I don't know where to start. How about...do you know what happens when there's an actual breakdown?
First reader who gets all 3 gets an environmental and/or geological conference tchochke!
